    Hello,
    These 2 vases belong to my family from more than 80 years - or much more we aren't sure exactly, but we are certain that they were bought by a family member more than 4 generations back, and the whereabouts of where they were brought from or the source is totally lost and unknown.
    We are not willing to sell them, but it's great to have an idea of the history and value of what we own.
    They are almost the same, and about 50cm high.
    Sorry I couldn't take more photos, I will do so as I got another chance..

    Any help or opinion is highly appreciated.

    Thnx

    Also the dust looks original to the piece.

    Hi and welcome to the board.
    Agree with 1880s to early 1900s Japanese .

    What does the bottom look like? Probably doesn't have any marks, but it is always good to show a picture of the base.

    The squat vase seems to have some of “The Immortals”

    Ok - I missed that one.
    Yes, agree might be the Immortals.

    Really would help if these two were cleaned up and new pictures posted with pictures of the bottoms.

    Thnx alot for the welcoming guys, it's a pleasure being here..

    Luckily I have got the chance to bring them down and take clearer photos. The other little vase has "made in japan" on the bottom(no photo for the marking sorry), but the larger vase got this markings I included in the first photo..

    The mark picture is upside down, I believe.

    "Made in Japan" marks are not seen before the 20th century - probably 1920's or later in this case.

    EDIT - Just checked Goteborg re Made In Japan marking - he says 1941 or later. If you would post a picture of the mark, we could compare to examples shown there.
